To Do lists, they just don’t work. 

At least not the way you’re using them.

Think about it, you make a list of a bunch of things that you need to get done.

Do you go in order?

Do you choose the easiest task first?

Do you choose the hardest


And it probably doesn’t matter because you’re likely making this one huge mistake.


In 2004, researchers Sheena Iyengar and Mark Lepper conducted a remarkable study on choice using gourmet jams in a food market.

The study showed that there was significantly more interest generated when people were given many choices.

However, when people were given fewer choices, they were 10 times more likely to buy!

And this is just one of the many studies that have been conducted that prove that at some point, the prefrontal cortex portion of our brain, the area that’s responsible for strategic planning and decision making, will shut down from information overload.

So, your to do list doesn’t work because there are just too many gosh darn items on it.


So the next time you create a to do list, keep it short.

No more than three to five items, and this will make it significantly easier for you to prioritize the tasks in order of importance.
